(FRIENDS & FAMILY)
1 MILE FIREFIGHTER CHALLENGE
FRIENDS & FAMILY
SEPTEMBER 10, 2022 | 11:15AM
Thank you for your interest in the 1 Mile Firefighter Challenge (Friends & Family) event. If you have a friend or family member that is participating in the 1 Mile Firefighter Challenge, as an active member of the fire service community, we encourage you to sign up and accompany them in this event.
ABOUT: The 1 Mile Firefighter Challenge is a 1 mile run/walk in which fire personnel are invited to participate in full gear in honor of the fallen first responders of 9/11.
Your participation in this event is not only about remembrance, but also about supporting those that continue to serve our communities today.
As a non-fire personnel participant, we ask that you keep the above statement in mind during this event. If you are registering for the 1 Mile, you should be accompanying a friend or family member who is currently serving in the fire service community.
We ask that you walk or run alongside them as they navigate the course. Please do not be competitive. Your participation in this event is about supporting those who put their lives on the line every day, rather than crossing the finish line first.
Turnout gear will not be provided for public use. If the firefighter you are accompanying provides you with gear, you are welcome to wear it. Please be advised, even in full gear, non-fire personnel are not eligible for awards during this event.
Please consider the 5K, 10K or 1 Mile Kid's Run if you do not know a participating firefighter and are simply looking to participate in a Run for the Fallen event.
Thank you for your cooperation and for supporting our first responders.
